Women’s Labor Rights: The Road Ahead
May 1 is International Workers Day. Its origins lie in a peaceful demonstration in 1886 in Chicago’s Haymarket Square that turned violent as frustrated workers petitioned for an eight-hour workday.

Yet enforcement on these issues continues to lag in many nations, and, particularly in the Asia Pacific region, women have not experienced the same degree of progress as men in claiming their rights.
